SKU: D19-44 Category:

LESS THAN . . . ! I bet all you loyal followers of The Daguerreian Forum in the 1990s and www.finedags beginning in 1999 have already anticipated the next word, PERFECT. The three little sisters arrived in Exeter along with about 40 other daguerreotypes. I used my entire conservation skillset trying to undo the damage that previous hands did in the past to their newly taped and cleaned sixth plate. Their maker wasn?t the most highly skilled operator to begin with, but he did manage to place the adorable cherubs on this damaged plate. Those white dresses turned blue because of solarization. The leather case is complete.
